    The academic programs at VVLC were great. I learned a lot when I attended school here. I did not like routines when I went to school and as long as you continued to apply yourself and do your work, you will love this school. Having breaks every couple of hours really helped out. We could release stress and tension when we had breaks. Im happy I went to this school, I dont think it would have been possible for me to graduate if I would have stayed at my district school.
